The Strokes

Lyrics

They've been sayin', "You're sophisticated"

They're complainin', overeducated

You are saying all the words I'm dreaming

Say it after me

Say it after me

They will blame us, crucify and shame us

We can't help it if we are a problem

We are tryin' hard to get your attention

I'm climbin' up your wall

Climbin' up your wall

Don't go there 'cause you'll never return

I know you think of me when you think of her

But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard

To do the right thing but without recompense

And then you did something wrong and you said it was great

And now you don't know how you could ever complain

Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to

But then you want me to do it the same as you

You were waitin' for the elevator

You were sayin' all the words I'm dreaming

No more askin' questions or excuses

Information's here

Here and everywhere

Don't go there 'cause you'll never return

I know you think of me when you think of her

But then it don't make sense when you're tryin' hard

To do the right thing but without recompense

And then you did something wrong and you said it was great

And now you don't know how you could ever complain

Because you're all confused 'cause you want me to

But then you want me to do it the same way as you, and, but

I don't, I don't want anything

I know it's not, it's not your fault

I don't want anyone

Always I do, it's not for you

Ah

Ooh

Stockholders

Same shit, a different lie

I'll get it right sometime

Oh, maybe not tonight

Oh, maybe not tonight

Oh, maybe not tonight

Oh, maybe not tonight

Oh, maybe not tonight

Hello?

Yeah, boy, here we go

And a-one, and a-two, and a-three

Here we go, friends

Hold on, I can't-

Maybe that's kooky situation

So, let's go back to the old key, old tempo, everything

Okay
